Did you know that this is Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable-Pet Week? It makes my heart feel sad inside to know that not every cat and dog has a loving Forever home of their own. I am one lucky curly cat!
Many pets are considered “less adoptable” because they are older, or have special needs, or simply because they are a “less desirable” color. To bring attention to these special pets, this week is designated as Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable-Pet Week, sponsored by PetFinder!
We adopted Harley from Cats Exclusive when he was 6 months old. Here he is at the shelter, snuggling with a smaller kitten. You can see that at 6 months old, he was no longer a tiny kitten, and was on the road to becoming Less Adoptable himself! The great thing about adopting an older pet is that you already know their personality. We knew in advance that the Harley Quinn was a maniac… but we still adopted him.
Cats Exclusive has lots of kitties who are looking for a Forever home. The kitty below is named Espresso. The nice people at Cats Exclusive told me that Espresso is a wonderful black kitty that has been overlooked simply because she is solid black. She is sweet and affectionate to all visitors and LOVES other cats. Espresso enjoys snuggling up to them, and is very motherly and nurturing. Espresso has been at Cats Exclusive since she was 3 months old, and she’s now about 11 months old. She would do great in any household and impresses everyone who visits. Unfortunately Espresso gets upstaged by the other friendly kitties that are “prettier.”
Espresso, I think you are beautiful! If you think Espresso is your cup o’ java, you can visit her PetFinder page!
Are you the proud parent of an adopted pet? I’d love to hear about your pets!
